Now winter is finally setting in, it’s time to get cosy with thick curtains, warm rugs, toasty quilts, and soft blankets. Trap heat by covering cold tile surfaces and keeping your feet warm. Snuggle up on the sofa with a good book and a good reading light – choose an LED for a strong light that uses 85% less energy than incandescent bulbs and won’t get hot if you’re engrossed in a real page turner well into the night.
And if you’re into winter cooking, there’s lots of ways to make the most of every ounce of power coming out of your stove, have a look at some of our ideas below. Have a cosy, toasty winter!"

You'll find our recycling point at the store entrance near the entrance to Smaland.
There's no need to toss recycling into the 'too hard' basket. With our RATIONELL waste sorting system you can separate your recyclables right away in your kitchen. This avoids contaminating your recyclables with general waste. And the good old organic compost waste pays dividends with healthy soil for your garden.
The bins are easy to lift and carry out to the bin, and lids lock in odours from organic waste. RATIONELL is made to fit 40, 60 or 80 cm base cabinets.
We believe we have some of the most committed, talented and creative people working for us. Every one of our permanent co-workers has access to one day of volunteer leave to work in the local community each year.
